12 Single Barrel Bourbons You Should Try Right Now

12 Single Barrel Bourbons You Should Try Right Now

It’s time to consider the bourbon world’s “one-of-a-kind” experience: the single barrel. Single barrel whiskey is arguably the purest expression of a bourbon’s character that money can buy. The beauty is in the simplicity: Generally speaking, every bottle you see with that moniker can be traced back to one single barrel, where it spent its entire life from distillation to bottling.

That barrel had a unique life experience, whether it choked in the heat of upper warehouse floors, mellowed at ground level, lived in sunlight next to a window, or even leaked just a little.

All of these things can contribute to the uniqueness of the whiskey inside the barrel. And because of all the factors, it’s impossible to say with certainty that any two barrels will ever taste alike. But having a great, unique whiskey … Read the rest

How to Have the Ultimate Summer Lake Day

How to Have the Ultimate Summer Lake Day

Ditch the beach and escape to the lake this season with these tips on how to have a truly wild day on the water.

1. Nail the High Jump

Here’s the move, after ensuring the water is deep and debris-free:

  • Visualize It: Know what you’re going to do and where you’re going to land, then in your mind play out the jump successfully.
  • Feet First: Even pro high divers largely avoid head-first entries—so you should, too.
  • Relax: Do some sort of simple move in the air with your arms. This will keep you from freezing up.
  • Keep it Tight: Just before entering the water, bring your legs together and hold your arms against your side.
  • Exhale: As you hit the water, blow out through your nose to prevent lake water from flushing your brain.

How to Host the Ultimate Backyard Bash This Summer

How to Host the Ultimate Backyard Bash This Summer

The grill is ready for some barbecue, your friends are ready for some liquor, and you’re ready to let loose for a few hours. Here are some tips to turn your cookout into the highlight of the season and to help you master the backyard bash.

1. The Party Primer: How to Keep the Good Times Rolling

Contain the Space

To ensure your cookout feels full, says Priya Parker, author of The Art of Gathering, confine the party area so that people aren’t widely dispersed, draining the energy. “Density is your friend,” she adds, so don’t let people hang out in the kitchen, sucking away momentum.

But Spread Out the Goods

You want to give people reasons to keep moving and chatting with other guests. To that end, separate the essentials—the punch bowl, the appetizers, the beer cooler—so guests aren’t stagnant.

Play by the Rules

“People like rules,” explains … Read the rest

How to Cook the Perfect Steak, According to a Pro Chef

How to Cook the Perfect Steak, According to a Pro Chef

Cooking up the perfect steak or burger on the grill is an iconic summer pastime, but it’s not always easy to get it just right. That’s why we brought in expert chef Michael Lomonaco of Hudson Yards Grill and former Food Network host to find out some tips you can use to impress everyone at your next summer gathering.

Tip #1: Pepper Your Steak at the End – For a ribeye steak “you want to season both sides with salt. I don’t hit it with pepper until I’m finished.” The pepper can burn if you cook it too much, so Lomonaco will add that once the steak is done cooking. Before grilling your steak, add some oil on the grill for extra flavor, then start cooking.

Tip #2: Leave Your Steak Alone – “As tempting as it is, I’m not going to touch … Read the rest

Backcountry Tips for the Ultimate Wilderness Weekend

Backcountry Tips for the Ultimate Wilderness Weekend

There’s no better time for a wilderness weekend than summer, when you can make s’mores over a crackling fire, pop open a can of wine fresh from the cooler, and sit back under a sky blanketed with stars.

To make the most of your time outdoors, here are some tips to take your backcountry excursion from simple to sublime.

1. See the Light

A dedicated light that you can hang in your tent will make your campsite feel more comfortable come dusk and help inside the tent feel more like a proper bedroom than a nylon coffin. Plus, if you take an evening walk (or need to relieve yourself), you can turn it on and easily find your way back to the glowing orb. A Goal Zero Light-a-Life is a good option, but most any hangable electric lantern should do.

2.
